Shatter the standards.

Shatter the standards
with this hammer splattered in words
crack damn that was easy
is that liquid red or clear?

Everywhere I go I hear the frustration
it’s within me
it’s within you
it’s within them
it’s within us all
I hear it
I pause
don’t get angry today
are they here in this store
then they’re miserable that’s clear.

I look around
there are cameras everywhere
who’s winning this
I’d love to know the true victor
the lonely one
going home
with a smile
no pressure
that’s impossible
are we your dolls
spin us up
let us loose
watch our fights
let us work it out
for what
for your pleasure
for your home?

All the dolls on the street
abrupt hit
slow it down
restock the shelves
it falls you ass plant to the ground
we do it for us
we do it for them?

They gave us this place
they gave us our jobs
to pay us for our service
thanks for the check
I have several cards at limit
we were made to be their doormat
free will
movies to drive our goals
make us believe we need it all
dangling better on a string
laughing as you fill your mansions
knowing we belong to all of you
the one thing I’m unsure of
is who you all really are?

Thanks for reading.
